SCOTUS rejects W.Va. ban on transgender sports

The US supreme court on Thursday refused to let West Virginia enforce a state law banning transgender athletes from female sports teams at public schools, one of many Republican-backed measures across the country targeting LGBTQ+ rights.

The justices denied West Virginia’s request to lift an injunction against the law that a lower court had imposed while litigation continues over its legality in a challenge brought by a 12-year-old transgender girl, Becky Pepper-Jackson.

Two conservative justices, Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas, publicly dissented from the decision.
